The train which left Covington for Cynthiana yesterday morning, with Capt. William Glass and his company, and their 12 pounder aboard, reached the town between 1r side of the town, about two hundred strong.
They opened fire briskly, and Capt. Glass, with his gun, moved up to open on them, when it was discovered that their down.
At this moment the train left.
As it was going off our informant saw Captain Glass, with his gun, going at full speed to repel the main attack.
There had beeumor circulated on the train before this by some badly-frightened boys, that Capt. Glass was killed.
Of course it was incorrect, as our informant saw him doing his peared were on foot.
The main body was reported on horseback.
The music of Capt. Glass's 12 pounder was heard very distinctly for some time by all persons on the tldest excitement.
"Two O'clock.--This messenger confirmed the report of Capt. Glass, of Cincinnati, being killed."

y--Destruction of bridge, Etc. [From the Cincinnati Commercial, 21st.]
We obtained from Capt. Wm. Glass, who arrived in this city yesterday, the following narrative of the fight at Cynthiana:
rmed a scouting expedition, crossing the Licking bridge on the Georgetown pike. Col. Landrum, Capt. Glass, and Lieut. Moore were together.
When they arrived about half a mile beyond the bridge, our derveer, encamped when that regiment took possession of Cynthiana) Seeing himself surrounded, Capt. Glass told his men to disperse and save themselves, which they did, each one finding the best hidin rebels were killed in the streets.
Seventeen Union citizens were killed and wounded.
Three of Glass's men were missing.
He feels sure of the safety of all but one--Tom Barry — who was asleep in tompany of cavalry, to the number of fifty, posted on Main street, a few yards to the rear of Captain Glass's position, conducted themselves shamefully, as they broke and fled at the first fire.
